Laughter, charm and grace

He made my parents laugh…and laugh…and laugh. He died and will be remembered by the audiences he entertained as well as the comedians he mentored.

Jonathan Winters was 87 years old when he died Thursday evening at his Montecito, Calif., home of natural causes.

 I love Jim Carrey’s comment best: “Jonathan Winters was the worthy custodian of a sparkling and childish comedic genius. He did God's work.”

May his legacy continue to inspire us.
